Neck Deep

To celebrate the release of their fourth full length album titled All Distortions Are Intentional, the incredible Wrexham crew Neck Deep return to Kingston to play an acoustic set with a Q&A at Pryzm. Massive pop-punk / alt-rock songs that we've been big fans of for a while now, we're super stoked to have them back.

With this album Neck Deep wants to continue carving out their own unique space within rock, punk, and alternative music. They have no delusions of "saving rock" or being the biggest rock band out there. They just want to remain Neck Deep and be an even bigger, better Neck Deep than before. They understand their roots are in pop punk, but want to expand on their sound in their own way, taking inspiration from artists like The Beatles and Nirvana who did things their own way and still were able to be massive.

Glass Animals

Following the release of their third full length album titled Dreamland, the ever-excellent electro-indie-poppers Glass Animals return to Kingston to play at Pryzm.

“The idea for this album came at a time of confusion and uncertainty. My best friend was in the hospital. I didn’t know if he’d make it. The future was damn scary and completely unknown. During those weeks in the hospital, it was so difficult to look forwards that I found myself looking backwards. Digging around in my mind, pulling up old memories, finding comfort in them even if they were uncomfortable in themselves.”

The Psychedelic Furs

Following the release of their highly anticipated new album titled Made Of Rain, the legendary post-punkers The Psychedelic Furs visit Kingston for an intimate, seated Q&A session. Made Of Rain will be the band's first new studio album in nearly 30 years and we're super excited to get an exclusive and personal insight. This event will have a special resonance with both Richard and Tim Butler having a Kingston connection.

From its exhilarating opening bars, Made Of Rain - sounds like The Psychedelic Furs and them alone. It’s a joy to hear again, fresher than ever. Their peerless permutations of art, aggression and ambience drive the dynamics, and it’s always been this originality which has set them apart, a cut above. The album was produced by Richard Fortus, whilst mixing duties were handled by Tim Palmer (David Bowie, U2, Robert Plant).
